    An automated scheduling system frequently sends me vCalendar attachments which I used to be able to open and automatically add to my calendar on my WinMo 6.1 phone. I've recently become an Android convert (myTouch 3g) and would like this same data loaded into my google calendar. I share my Google calendar with others, so using a proprietary calendar system isn't much of an option.

    I'm a programmer, but not on mobile platforms. If the software doesn't exist, I can probably code it up pretty quickly if someone points me in the right direction... ie how to programatically add to a google calendar.

    Thanks in advance.

    Forward the vCalendar email to your Gmail account. It should then be able to add it to the Google Calendar.

    that would still require me to sign onto google and click the vCalendar attachment, right? Not a huge problem but an extra step I would like to avoid.

    Unfortunately, yes. My friend tried to get a filter to do the work automatically however was unable to get it working.

    I think I can do it from code without too much effort. I'll post on the dev forum and see what comes up.

    Thanks
